I'm a freelance copywriter and a creative director.

I began my career in advertising in 1990 as a copywriter at AKA Advertising and Sass in Portland, where I later returned as Creative Director. In between I worked at a variety of Portland agencies and spent a year at Deutsch in New York.

In 1999, I co-founded the interactive agency Paris France, where I was a Creative Director and principal. Paris France was honored by nearly every major national and international award show, including The One Show, The Andy Awards, Communication Arts, British Design & Art Direction, and the Cannes Cyberlions. Paris France web sites have been featured in magazines and books in the US, Britain, Japan, Korea, and, of course, France.

In 2005 I joined ID Branding as Executive Creative Director and in 2007 my two partners and I bought ID Branding and turned it into an interdisciplinary agency with capabilities in advertising, graphic design, interactive, and strategy.

In 2012 I earned my MFA in photography at the Hartford Art School and in 2013 began teaching in the advertising program at Portland State University. Read Less
